The Iron Curtain Falls

An enormous event in the Trombley household tonight!!!!

Mary, after weeks of flat out rejecting even my talking to the baby as "Maximus" suggested tonight that we add it to the middle of the baby's name! Oh happy day!

You see, it was a strategy all along. After introducing "Maximus" as an option, and being punched, slapped, and thoroughly ostracized, I came up with an even worse option.....


My calculated risk was that Mary, faced with the abject horror of her child having "OZ" as a part of its name, would see Maximus as a viable alternative.

"Insert Evil laughter here muhahhhahhhahhha"

Of course, the risk I took was that my wife of over 5 years realizes the turd she married and takes all thinking privledges away from me.


Please, share my joy. Share in the exuberance of my success. Share with really cool presents at the shower! :)

what's in a name?

As of yet, we are still deciding on a name for our baby. We have narrowed it down to what we think it might be... or at least I thought we did.

Then, the other day, Matt comes home and says he has a name for a son, a name that his co-worker suggested that day at work. Now, he tells everyone that this name is what we are naming it if it's a boy.

Matt wants to name our child... Maximus.

So, though we appreciate the input we have received on naming our child, I ask... I beg... that you keep your name suggestions to yourself... please... for the sake of our child (and his/her mom). Thanks...

sakes alive

I think our child must have inherited legs from its Aunt Sally 'cause it's kapow.. kapow, kapow.. kapow, constantly, all day long. And sometimes all night. Man, he is strong!!

I think he (I call it "he"; Matt calls it "she") he doesn't sleep much, at least lately. All I am is hungry lately... and if I do eat, after about 30 minutes, it feels like he takes a straw and sucks every bit of energy from me. My limbs go weak and i just want to collapse in a nap. So, as of now, all I do, it seems, is eat, sleep, eat, eat, eat, sleep, eat.

But I am definitely not complaining!! He/She doesn't let me forget that there is life inside that is growing and strengthening and learning!!! Praise God from whom all blessing flow!
